The AMAZING View From the Livingroom

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jan 21, 2009

This beautiful, recently remodeled Vail mountain vacation house was truly immaculate and one-of-a-kind. The house was absolutely breathtaking and the living room’s large picture windows offered views like you’ve never seen before. From the hardwood floors to the kitchen to the bedrooms to the bathrooms, every feature of this modern home was impressive. The home was so spacious and private yet it still felt cozy and at home. Whether you’re visiting Vail in the summer or winter months, you need to explore all that the little quaint town has to offer. The house is conveniently located on Vail Mountain in Cascade Village so you can catch a few runs before returning for lunch and enjoy the rest of your day skiing without all the hustle and bustle with skiing crowds. If you're looking for a relaxing or fun-filled getaway, you will enjoy everything this wonderful house has to offer you and your guests. The VRBO Bear

Fantastic home with space for our family of 8.

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to this home. It is perfect for our family of 8 plus an infant. Private bed and bath for 4 couples, 2 huge common spaces and a very well equipped kitchen (plates and drinkware for 20). I hope this home is available should our travels bring us back to Vail.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We looked at many properties in Vail, but we kept coming back to this property. I contacted the owner and after talking to him, I realized this was definitely the place we wanted to stay. We were in Vail for my son's wedding, and this property had everything we needed. Plenty of bedrooms, and bathrooms! We used all four bedrooms , and never felt like we were crowded for space. The view was great from almost every room in the house. Everything in the house worked, and there was even a pack and play for our granddaughter.

The proximity of the house to everything was good. Grocery store 10 minutes one way, and Vail Village 5 minutes the other.

Reserving the property went smoothly, and about ten days before, we received the checkin instructions and also a list of things to do in Vail. Communication was never an issue with the owners before and during our stay.

Overall, we were very pleased with this rental. The only negative about our stay was that when we were leaving, we wished we could have stayed a few more days to just relax at the house after all the wedding festivities! Would stay here again.

Beautiful property with great view, very fully equipped kitchen, super floor plan, comfortable beds.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our multi generational family. The 3 levels allowed for children to sleep, adults to share stories and grandparents to rest. The area is beatiful with walking paths following a creek (good fishing) and a Health Club/Spa within walking distance. Deer walk through the yard and Vail and Lionshead Villages are short drives or shuttles. A gondola ride at Lionshead arrives at a magnificent viewpoint with many family activities available. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Gery, We are so happy that you enjoyed our Chalet in Vail and took advantage of all of the terrific activities available close to our home such as hiking, fishing, gore creek activities, watching the wild animals right from our living room or bedrooms roam across the open field directly out the back door and of course just relaxing! We hope you will return in the coming year and of course we will offer you our special discount for repeat clients! Enjoy the rest of the Summer- Julie and Larry- Owners!
